Atacama Pathfinder EXperiment (APEX)
The Atacama Pathfinder EXperiment (APEX) is a collaboration between the Max Planck Institut für Radioastronomie (MPIfR), Onsala Space Observatory (OSO) and the European Southern Observatory (ESO) to construct and operate a modified Atacama Large Millimetre Array (ALMA) prototype antenna as a single dish on the high altitude site of Llano Chajnantor (Chile). It can be used to study cold dust and gas in the Milky Way and in distant galaxies, to trace the thermal continuum emission and analyse hig

4.1 Introduction

Let us turn now to the problem of consciousness. What exactly is the issue here that so divides philosophers and is the focus of such vigorous debate? In broad terms, it is the question of the place of consciousness in the world – the question of how it arises and how it is related to processes in the brain. It is hard to deny that consciousness is closely dependent on the brain. Changes in the brain can affect consciousness (think of the effects of anaesthetics and psychedelic drugs), and

3.3 Luminosities

The issue of whether QSO redshifts are of cosmological origin was unambiguously settled by the work illustrated in Figure 5 (particularly the two leftmost panels). When sensitive enough observations are made, the galaxies in which the quasars reside can be detected. The relatively faint emission from the surroundi

1.2 The ‘genes and behaviour’ problem

Amidst the progressive change to the brain and nervous system that occurs during development, there is one constant, one fixed element; the set of deoxyribonucleic acid, DNA, molecules found in each cell. These molecules are the genetic material, and they store the information for the construction of the organism. The same set of DNA molecules is found in every cell of an organism (its genome). (There are some exceptions to this such as sperm, unfertilised egg and red blood cells, but they ne

3.1 Introduction

Just how readily available are uranium resources, and do their distribution and cost impose restrictions on nuclear power generation? Compared to a coal-fired power station a nuclear power station requires far less fuel in terms of mass. You have seen that a 1 GW burner reactor requires 5000 t of natural uranium over 30 years, whereas a comparable modern coal-fired power station needs 10 000 t of coal every day. However, uranium does not occur naturally in metallic form, nor in the concentrat

Myth at the heart of the Roman Empire
How and why did ancient Romans use myth to validate their power? Emperor Augustus legitimised his rule by entwining his own ancestry with the mythical stories of Rome's foundation, and created a divine aura around Rome as capital of the vast empire. This album visits key emblems associated with Rome's beginnings: the Forum and the Capitoline Hill with its statue of the she-wolf and Romulus and Remus; the Emperor Augustus's palace and ceremonial altar, and the 17th Century D'Arpino frescos of fou
